Am starting to get quotes on an ebook cover and need someone with skills. I have scrap, its a photo from a photo shoot of a now defunct jewelry eStore. I would like a young Ancient Egyptian girl (18ish) that looks Greek. It for a historical fiction novel. I also am looking for branding of the series so if you are interested I would love a quote. Thank you in advance.

Excellent artistic rendition! A fine work of art ... such lovely detail. You seem to understand that Cleo was a Mediterranean Hellenistic Greek ruler, not an "Egyptian" in the ethnic sense. Nearly all contemporary depictions of her depicts her as wearing a 'chignon' type hair style with a 'bun' in the back, however.

Thank you. I sometimes receive comments which mistakenly identify her ethnicity, sometimes angrily. You however are of course correct, as is, refreshingly, your use of the word, “contemporary” :)

Cleo belongs to the ages. An artist can take "artistic" license to depict her any way they want as far as I'm concerned. I am part northern Greek myself, so I like to play up Cleo's Macedonian heritage; but an artist is free to portray her any way he or she likes.

I think it is Pretty, Cleopatra had Greek heritage yet lived under the Egyptian Sun, this may be accurate!

I love my Cleopatra but this depiction is too American white in features to do her justice. Disappointed :(

Intriguing artwork, my only question is, in all the historical text on cleopatra, what was the prompt for the mole on her left cheek? Ancient Egyptians would have striven to hide a blemish of that form. Otherwise the picture is excellent, and i like it. Good job.

Absolutely gorgeous work. So realistic. The hair and jewellery are so intricate, it's easy to forget it isn't a just a photograph :D

The eyes are really beautiful and I can't help but be drawn in.

I can see Angelina Jolie's influence on your image. Especially around the mouth. It's subtle but looks a lot like her smile.

Very inspiring :heart: thank you for sharing it
